My Pi 4 runs great, works well and has no real issues.
Networking is setup to be a WiFi hotspot so that I can connect tot he pi and works really well and is fast.
Ethernet on the other hand is a hot mess.
Ive used this disk image on other Pis and not really noticed any issues previously, however I am testing a lot more on this Pi4 with Ethernet, so maybe that is why I am noticing it now.
I plug the Pi4 into my managed switch and it gets connectivity and all is visible, however, it is really, really, really slow.
Ive been living with this the past month or so and it’s been a pain, but sorta works.
Today I plug it in and I have zero connectivity.
Managed switch and the Pi4 end both have connectivity and activity lights.
Router cant see it.
WiFi works fine.
I need to have ETH connectivity however as I need access on my local network for both connecting to the Pi4 and giving it internet access.
Ive tried different cat5 cables and different ports on the switch as well as rebooting, to no avail.
Lastly, I’ve plugged the same cat5 cable into my laptop and it all works perfectly.
Does this issue sound familiar to anyone and does anyone have ideas as to where to begin to look?
